Using a "Worker" Thread makes sense when
- long winding stuff (calculations, file search, database, ...) are
done in the Thread and the GUI is supposed to go on working during that time
- you want to take advantage of multiple cores working in parallel
(e.g. for number crunching)
- you want to wait for external events in a blocking OS Call (e.g.
I would avoid using Threads if not decently justified, as a lot
